Acceleration "stumbles" when making a turn

I have noticed in the past few days that occasionally when I make a turn (especially a right turn) that the Jeep's acceleration hesitates or stumbles initially - almost like it is losing traction and then catches and drives fine. I don't see any lights on the dash when this happens, so it is not losing traction nor has it thrown any codes.

Anyone experience the same issue or diagnosed this occurrence?

Had a similar issue except mine was during left turns. Ended up being one of the ABS Wheel Speed Sensors on that side. They send speed signals to the tranny, so either the tranny was tripping, or ABS was kicking in which caused me to have the same initial diagnosis: stumbling acceleration.

That being said, when's the last time you did a tune-up? Coil packs do go back on the WK's and spark plugs might be concern depending on how long you've had them in service. Additionally, if you're rolling your Hemi with the factory wiring loom, I'd get rid of it in a hurry and upgrade to Taylor shorties.
